The detained leader of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN), Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky has distributed foodstuff worth millions of Naira to the needy to mark the beginning of this year’s Ramadan season.
The food items, which include bags of sugar, rice, maize and millet were distributed on his behalf by his son, Muhammad Ibraheem Zakzaky.
The detained cleric instructed the distribution of the items to assist as many needy Nigerians as possible during this Ramadan.
Our reporter witnessed the event at Zaria, Kaduna and the other LGAs on Kaduna State, noted that, it has been Sheikh Ibrahim Zakzaky’s practice to share food items to the poor and the needy for over 20 years.
“It has been a practice that has continued even after the Buhari-led government killed over a thousand of his supporters including his sons and hurled him and the wife in illegal detention having grievously wounded them and refused to comply with the judgment of the Federal High Court that declared their detention as a breach of their fundamental rights.”
He added that the cleric sends his best wishes to Muslims all over the world and assured them of his prayers throughout the Islamic fasting season.
